My philosophy is to treat each pupil on an individual basis. How each pupil is approached is dependent on many factors such as age, ability, goals, ball flight, frequency of practice, the pupil's own concepts and so on. The solutions to each pupil's problems are arrived and based on all these factors and my experience of what generally works sometimes works and what never works in fixing swing patterns and ball flight.
Originally from Montreal Canada, Peter began his career as a golf coach in 1987 working with Club Med resorts in Tunisia, Spain, France and Bali. Duties included conducting golf clinics on the full swing, short game, golf demonstrations and the organisation of golf excursions to local golf clubs.  In his final year working for Club Med Peter was placed as Responsible of the Golf School in Bali gaining experience in golf management through the training of golf instructors, organising lesson schedules, tournaments, golf demonstrations, excursions and golf course modification at the resort.

In 1989 Peter relocated to Brisbane Australia, serving for thirteen years at Aspley Pin High Golf Club. There he conducted beginner and advanced clinics, junior classes, private coaching and pioneered the use of computer swing analysis in Brisbane. 

In April 2002 Peter was appointed Head Golf Professional at Hope Island Golf Club on the Gold Coast. During his 11 years at Hope Island Peter developed a very successful junior academy mentoring several talented young golfers to folow their goals of playing on the PGA tours. Peter also created the online swing analysis website Swing Mate, where students can access their swings and practice plans online comparing themselves to touring professionals.

Peter worked for several years with the PGA International Golf Institute mentoring local and overseas players and has written for several golf magazines and newspapers.

Peter has been a "AAA" ranked Professional since 2000 by the Australian PGA. Also in January 2000 Peter attained Level lll Accreditation in the category of Golf Coaching (professional) by the PGA Professional Development Program, in association with The Australian Coaching Council.
 
Technology has played a key role in Peter's coaching as he specialises inComputer Swing Analysis. The use of digital video for super clear frame by frame pictures and the ability to compare swings has made it much easier to understand the golf swing. "To achieve your goals in golf and understand the mechanics of the swing, one must get a clear image of how the fundamentls work. As you see your swing compared with a fundamentally correct action, together with professional advice, it all becomes much easier."
